Adults 18-35 years, who have experienced knee pain for at least 2 months.

The study will determine if adults with knee pain produce force with their knee muscles differently to those without knee pain, and if common therapeutic interventions affect the balance of force produced by the thigh muscles.

Data collection occurs at St Lucia campus of The University of Queensland, and includes ultrasound to look at the structure and function of thigh muscles, and measurements of muscle activity. Participants are asked to perform a series of maximal and submaximal contractions and wall-squat tasks. Data collection takes ~1.5 hours, and participants are reimbursed a $20 Coles-Myer gift certificate for their time.

People with knee pain will need to have a clinical assessment to determine if they can participate in the study.

Please email ria.thompson@uq.net.au or k.tucker1@uq.edu.au (Dr Kylie Tucker, Chief Investigator) for more information.
